Covering the Overnight Market Crash

CNN_10.8.jpgAt some point after the second presidential debate and before the half point rate cut, the Asian markets started to tank. At 2:14amET, CNN interrupted a re-air AC360 to simulcast CNN International. CNN’s Tokyo correspondent Kyung Lah, (late of KNBC-TV), reported that this was the biggest drop in the Nikkei since 1987. CNN stayed with CNNI until 4amET, when the network re-joined the re-air of the debate and the AC360 post-debate coverage. American Morning began early at 5:30amET.

Between 2am-4amET, Fox Business Network jumped between Sky Business Australia, a re-air of Dave Ramsey and Sky News. During that time, CNBC stayed in infomercials until Worldwide Exchange began at 4amET.
